Have Your Say on Ontario's Hydrogen Strategy

Published on November 20, 2020

The Ontario government is releasing a discussion paper for public consultation that will inform the creation of the province’s first hydrogen strategy. 

The paper sets out a vision for a new hydrogen economy in the province – one that will attract investment, and lead to more job creation, while helping reduce greenhouse gas emissions using low-carbon hydrogen.

The government sees tremendous potential in this new energy source. In addition to fueling trucks and ships, low-carbon hydrogen can also be used for industrial processes and energy storage, and be blended into the natural gas pipeline to heat and power homes and businesses.

During these challenging times, it’s never been more important to encourage new industries to contribute to Ontario’s economic recovery, while addressing climate change through innovative new ways.

We want to hear from the public, businesses, municipalities, Indigenous communities and stakeholders on our discussion paper so that we can continue to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and support private-sector innovation in clean technologies.

Following public consultation on the discussion paper, Ontario will release its hydrogen strategy in 2021. The strategy will outline hydrogen opportunities in Ontario, including strategies to help Ontario’s hydrogen sector compete in the global hydrogen market.
